Esel lost her husband recently so she relocated to Istanbul. Currently Esel looks for a place to live. What she does not realize is that the apartment she is about to rent has been ‘seeking’ her as well. Esel rents an apartment with a spirit trapped in it. Decades ago Selin, a woman who caused the death of her husband and committed suicide afterwards, lived here. Ever since Selin’s spirit has been trapped in this apartment, has been waiting to be set free.
